Williamson 2 The therapist individually asks each member about himself of herself in a polite, “small-talk” fashion. The therapist asks for information about school, work, hobbies, or anything else family members will say about themselves. The therapist: 1. Begins with one of the parents or with the oldest adult in the family and proceeds from parents to oldest children to youngest child. This sequence of addressing members supports the natural hierarchy of the family unit. If both parents are present, and if one of them made the initial contact for the appointment, the therapist begins with the other parent; this balances the information sharing and, in the case of a family with a CD adolescent, draws in the (presumably) less involved parent. 2. Finds out about the extended family (grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.). Depending on the types and amount of contact with the family, these members may be asked to attend one or more future sessions. 3. Asks several general questions that support the members strengths as a family: “What does this family enjoy doing together?” or “Tell me about something (or someone) in the family you’re proud of” or other light-hearted inquiries that reveal their competence and success as a family.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
